FOOD: Yummy Mummys Celebrate My Birthday!

This may come as a late post as I celebrated my birthday last September. Sorry, I've been THAT busy! Despite how late this post is, I hope you enjoy reading on how I celebrated my birthday with my friends with a cooking party! If you haven't read about our cooking parties, you can read about our first party, here and our second one, here.

Usually there are three of us - Me, Kathy and Dianne. But since it was my birthday and because my birthday is SPECIAL (chos!), we were joined by three more! JP, the doctor chef, Dana, the pastry chef and Dar, our assistant chef. Our cooking party is indeed more fun with more participants!

I decided to make a Ground Beef and Lettuce Lumpia. Kathy made Tinapa Lumpia while Dianne made some Cinnawich. Our new recruits, JP, made Seafood Pasta and Dana made some yummy Apple Pie.


Cooking is so much fun with friends!

I'm a happy Birthday Girl! They surprised me with cake and pancit too! =) Love my friends! 
Thank you!!! =)
Plus, leaving the party with new knowledge of easy to prepare recipes is the best part!

Us all - Dar, Me, Dana
Dianne, Kathy, JP

As always, at the end of my Cooking Party posts, here is one of our recipes I'd like to share with you.


Lettuce Lumpia

Ingredients:
Fresh Lettuce Leaves
1 1/2 Kilo Ground Pork
3 pcs. Chopped Carrots
Oyster Sauce
Hoisin Sauce

Instructions:
1. Cook Ground Pork, Add Carrots and a bit of Oyster Sauce. 
2. Wash lettuce leaves
3. Line lettuce leaves with Hoisin Sauce and put cooked Ground Pork mixture inside. Just enough to allow the lettuce leaves to roll up. Secure with toothpick if needed.

That's it! EASY right? Healthy too! Try it! =)
